Fixed weight dumbbells are fine, of course, but if you’re serious about home workouts — progressive overload still applies when you're training away from the gym, don't forget — an adjustable dumbbell or two should sit at the top of your home gym shopping list. After all, you won’t get very far if you lift the same pair of dumbbells every day.
Albert Einstein famously said: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results,” and this applies to your home training set-up. Simply put: repping out workouts with a pair of 10s forever won’t get you biceps the size of The Rock anytime soon. Remember, the body gets used to the demands being placed on it very quickly. Whether you want to build muscle, burn fat or get fitter, you have to consistently increase load, time and effort.
That’s where adjustable dumbbells become so useful, allowing you to change the setting of the weight as your body becomes stronger.
Bowflex’s SelectTech adjustable dumbbell starts at 2kg and adjusts through to 24kg, via its unique dial system. At the click and twist of your fingertips, you can easily switch from one exercise to the next and build on existing PBs and workouts without having to invest in multiple dumbbells and a weights rack.
What’s more, thanks to the Black Friday sale, they’re currently incredibly cheap on Amazon right now, discounted by 24% to £189.0o. You can shop the deal here.
